Savannah is a fun place to visit, but you can easily go into the wrong area. There is alot of renovation going on to fully restore the town. You can be looking at a million dollar mansion and go up one block and see really bad poverty. Just be cautious on where you are and always look ahead.

Savannah is another town where the "have" and "have nots" tend to interact on a daily basis.
Most of the River Front area seems well-policed, but there is a lot of partying and that can present occasional problems. There are certainly some areas of town that would not be fun to walk around in alone at night, but you won't find them highlighted in the brochures. If in doubt, ask the locals before setting off. During the day, most of the squares and downtown seem pretty safe.
As with any tourist city, don't "FLASH" your valuables or isolate yourself and you should have a fun time.

There isn't a chapter of weird people so I put it under this one. It’s not a warning or has any danger; I only want to show you this guy. Please do we have a choice; Jesus or Death? He sits everyday somewhere in Savannah, with everyday another sign. Today it was this one.

Savannah is a walking city and walk we did, but apparently all our walking efforts were not enough to stave off the extra pounds. If it happens that your pants grow tighter, as mine did, just stay calm and remember that the food was damn good.

Savannah is known as the City of Parks and Squares. Be sure to take time to explore them on foot (not at night, though). However, driving around them may be confusing, especially at night.
My advice -- park and walk.

As other people have mentioned, the town can get a little shady after dark, but don't let that discourage you from getting out on the town at night. Savannah is quite majestic in the evening hours, and a moonlit walk through the streets can be very refreshing and romantic. Just keep your wits about you and don't wear diamonds bigger than your fist and you won't have any trouble with the Savannah criminal element. I've lived in Savannah all my life, and I was mugged once (its very rare but it happens) and if it makes you feel any better the mugger was very polite about the whole matter and said 'Please' and 'Thank you' . . . like I've stressed before, folk in Savannah are incredibly polite.

As said before, pick-pockets and purse snatchings. The most common ' I need a quarter or fifty cents for the bus' as you pull out your wallet or go to dig for change, they snatch it and run. Also, when River Street is packed on weekends or events, it can be really crowded, best to keep your purse at home and wallet in front pocket. Savannah is not that bad, but like any city with alot of people gathered in small quarters, it can happen, so be careful!

Not really a danger, but be warned: if you don't like loud partygoers, it would be wise to avoid Savannah during St. Patrick's Day celebrations. This is the best place south of Boston to go for great parades and parties on that most Irish of days.

As in many great cities, the potential danger would be pick pocketing, so watch your wallets. Dowtown Savannah is safe to walk at night, however you should avoid streets that are not well lighted at night.

Make sure your car is up for the ride out to Tybee Island. It only took 45 minutes for us to get there, but hours to get back after the old Honda Civic overheated with 215,000 miles on it...lol.
